Hands-On Do-it-Yourself Ski and Snowboard Wax lesson
Skis & Boards need to be waxed often after a single day of riding to no longer than 3 days depending upon the snow condition. We’ll teach you – at your own station, on your own equipment – how to wax so you can do it at home in as little as 20 minutes hands on time using tools you can gather for about fifteen to twenty dollars (2010 prices). We discuss about tuning and overall equipment care and end with waxing your own equipment. You’ll learn why caring for your own equipment can make you a better rider. End the hassles of lugging equipment across town or waiting in wax lines on the slope. Learn how & why you can do a professional job yourself quickly and efficiently.
No more schlepping your equipment across town - or waiting in line at
the slopes for your wax job. Learn how to give your equipment a thorough
waxing yourself with just a little time and a few tools.
So bring your equipment and leave with freshly waxed skis & boards!
You'll never have to lug your equipment to a shop or wait in line again for a simple waxing.
So the way to go is learning the skills
yourself, so you can do it easily whenever you need to. It's a fairly
simple garage or kitchen task with the right tools and a little floor
covering. (We won't do edge tuning or base repairs here.)
This private lesson is for snowboards, downhill skis and monoskis; sorry - not for nordic skis. This is a one on one lesson or can be a group lesson.
